ASSAD’S THUGS AND SUPPORTERS BLOCK AND ATTACK A UN CONVOY GOING TO INSPECT THE MASSACRE IN HAFFE. Lattakia: June 12, 2012 - In order to prevent UN Observers from reaching the besieged town of Al-Haffe, Assad’s supporters block and attack vehicles carrying the observers. Assad’s own news agencies even had the audacity to declare yesterday that there would be “an imminent massacre committed by ‘armed terrorists’ in Al-Haffe” … a prelude to what will actually happen - Assad’s forces will massacre civilians there and blame it on the ‘armed terrorists’
Assad’s monkeys did the same when the Arab League Observers came to town.
The United Nations actually made their own video showing the damages car and explaining what happened.
***NEW VIDEO*** PROTESTERS PULL A UN OBSERVER TO SAFETY AS ASSAD’S FORCES OPEN FIRE ON THE CONVOY. Idleb (Khan Shaykhoun): May 15, 2012 - On a day where Bashar Al Assad’s forces massacred 22 people in this town and shelled the United Nations convoy, this video emerges of unarmed and peaceful protesters rescuing a UN observer and moving him to safety as Assad’s forces open fire.
A longer video of the attack by Assad’s forces on protesters and the UN convoy.
The UN observers ended up spending the night in the town as they could not be evacuated. So far not a word from the UN on the incident except for a vague statement claiming they did not know who was firing. Not even a mention of the 22 dead and almost 100 injured in the massacre.
This is sounding and feeling like Balkan conflict all over again. A foreign backed government massacring it’s own people.
A SOLDIER FROM ASSAD’S ARY DEFECTS FROM HIS UNIT IN-FRONT OF UN OBSERVERS TO THE SHOCK OF ASSAD’S MERCENARIES. Idleb: May 11, 2012 - Despite the continued daily death toll, the presence of UN Observers has brought a few positives, the decreased shelling is one and in this video we see another, a soldier defects from Assad’s murderous army in-front of them. He can do this because there are UN Observers present.
In any other case on earth, this would be suicide. If the defected soldier is not shot in the back as he runs, he is pursued ruthlessly until he’s captured, brutally tortured and executed. If he is not captured then Assad’s forces will abduct his family and torture or execute them to force the soldier to return.
ANOTHER BABY IS DEAD. MURDERED BY ASSAD’S FORCES. Damascus (Douma): Apr 21, 2012 - Adam Bassam Al-Najjar was only 10months old, her grave just small enough for her tiny body. What was her crime? Why did Assad’s forces kill her?
***CLEAR EVIDENCE*** ASSAD’S FORCES FIRE AT UNARMED PROTESTERS AS THEY WALK WITH THE UNITED NATIONS OBSERVER VEHICLES. Damascus (Arbeen): Apr 18, 2012 - Can it get more clear than this? The head of the UN observer mission denied that his convoy was shot at during a protest in Arbeen.
He must know by now that every protest is recorded by activists in Syria. Why would he deny the shooting when its clear as day?
The throngs of protesters chant “God Support the Free Syrian Army” as UN vehicles pass between them. Then shots ring out from Assad’s thugs up ahead and protesters run for cover as the UN vehicles speed away.
ASSAD’S FORCES OPEN FIRE ON UNARMED AND PEACEFUL PROTESTERS AS THE UN OBERVERS ‘OBSERVE’ THE SCENE. Damascus (Arbeen) Apr 18, 2012 - What more is there to add? Assad orders his mercenaries and thugs to fire on protesters in-front of UN observers. Plan and simple.
Watch the UN either deny this or do nothing about it.
PBS NEWSHOUR REPORT ON SYRIA - Syrian President Bashar al-Assad dismissed the Arab League’s plans to end his country’s 10-month old crisis Monday. Ray Suarez discusses the organization’s presence in the embattled country with Emile Hokayem of the International Institute for Strategic Studies and Andrew Tabler of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy.
A former Algerian army officer who resigned in disgust and fear from the Arab League mission to monitor events in Syria accused the regime of Bashar Al Assad yesterday of committing crimes against humanity.
Anwar Malek said he saw snipers kill at least two people, one of them a child, was shown corpses, witnessed brutal beatings and arrests by soldiers and militiamen and escaped an attempt on his own life during a 15-day stay in the city of Homs.
Speaking from an undisclosed location in France, he alleged that the Syrian authorities had placed him and other monitors under constant surveillance and brushed aside any criticism of tactics used to crush popular revolt. Everything possible was done, he said, to undermine attempts to produce an independent assessment.
“In my own case, they tried to humiliate me and falsely accused me of supporting terrorists,” he said. Mr Malek also voiced suspicion that the Syrian authorities were responsible for the mortar attack that killed a French cameraman, Gilles Jacquier, in Homs a week ago.
ARAB LEAGUE OBSERVERS GET A TASTE OF LIFE (DEATH) IN HOMS. Dec 27, 2011 - Just as the inhabitants of Homs are pinned down daily from street to street by Assad’s snipers, Arab League observers get a first hand experience of what life is like for these people everyday. In this video Assad’s forces fire in the alleys and streets of the city as the observers and protesters are cornered…
HOMSI’S ATTEMPTING TO EXPRESS THEMSELVES FREELY. Homs: Dec 28, 2011 - As Arab League observes do their job observing, the people of Homs take the rarest of opportunities to stage a mass protest in-front of Bashar Al Assad’s forces. You can see in the video that Assad’s forces painted their Russian made killing machines blue in a bid to convince observers that they are police, and not military mercenaries working for Assad.
These rare opportunities to have their voices heard are completely non-exisitant in much of Syria and especially Homs. In this city merely crossing the street will cause you to take a snipers bullet to the head…
Shortly after the observers left, Assad’s forces opened fire on the protesters. !7 were killed in Homs alone that day.
A team of observers from the Arab League traveled to the embattled Syrian city of Homs on Tuesday in a visit that quieted days of fierce violence but also provided hints of the potential challenges of a group trying to monitor a withdrawal of the government’s security forces in towns across the country.
Kept at bay by gunfire, the observers were not able to see areas of Homs that had suffered from the worst violence, and also appeared limited by government efforts to conceal its crackdown. Human Rights Watch reported on Tuesday that the Syrian government had transferred hundreds of prisoners in Homs to other sites, including military installations, where the observers were not allowed to visit. A group of observers was also prevented from visiting the restive town of Dara’a in the south, because of security restrictions, according to a team member.
